abp(th, g, rays, width)
% ab2p.m - polar gain plot in absolute units - 2*pi angle range
%
% Usage: h = abp2(th, g, rays, width)
%        h = abp2(th, g)              (equivalent to rays=30, width=1)
%        h = abp2(th, g, rays)        (equivalent to width=1)
%
% th    = polar angles over [0,pi]
% g     = gain at th (g is in absolute units)
% rays  = ray grid at 30 degree (default) or at 45 degree angles
% width = linewidth of gain curve (width=1 by default)
%
% h     = handle to use for adding more gains and legends (see DBADD)
%
% examples: abp2(th, g);             default (30-degree lines and 40-dB scale)
%           abp2(th, g, 45);         use 45-degree grid lines
%           abp(th, g, 30, 1.5);    use thicker line for gain
%
% notes: makes polar plot of g versus th,
%        omnidirectionality in azimuthal angle phi is assumed,
%        gain plot at left side over [-pi,0] is added symmetrically, 
%        max-g is assumed to be unity (e.g., as in the output of ARRAY),
%        half-power grid circle at g=1/2 is added,
%        for EPS output, use width=1.50 for thicker gain line, 
%        use width=0.75 for thinnest line
